Looking at Qt Creator code (
- there certainly is a bit of alpha-blending, with a good intention to fit
both light and dark backgrounds. The problem is that the background colour
used for alpha-blending is taken, apparently, from PaletteBase in the
mentioned theme file - and PaletteBase doesn't govern the background inside
the editor, the colour from the editor style does.
